Defund Obamacare? The Border Fence Was
Over at RedState, the row about defunding Obamacare has attracted a commenter who has grasped the implications of the Immigration War
Early in the comment thread of The Cries of the House GOP Staffers and Congressmen by Erik Erikson September 18th, 2013 “loganyung” writes
Republican Congressmen, remember the Secure Fence Act of 2006. It passed 283 to 138 in the House, and 80 to 19 in the Senate. The majority of the fence was not built, because it was not fully funded. It was very popular with Americans. Obamacare is widely unpopular. So, why is it such a big deal to defund it? Just do what the Democrats did for the border fence.
Obamacare is not a central VDARE.com issue, although we have noted the cost bloating impact of immigration and Amnesty on it, the strong likelihood of mission creep like the 1965 Immigration Act, and with great interest, the sudden enthusiasm for judicial impeachment when its enthusiasts feared the Supreme Court would adjudicate rather than legislate last year.
But ‘loganyung’ is right: Immigration policy has proved where there is a will there is a way.
Unfortunately so far it is the Treason Lobby which has the will.
